Make the world your runway with the fantastic Timber™ 1.5m BNF® Standard park flyer. It comes geared up with an unequalled combination of features that let everyone from newer pilots to professional sticks delight in a flexible, sport-flying experience unlike any other.
Sport Aerobatics, Off-Field Experience, Drift Aircraft Fun-It Does it All
If you have actually been searching for a terrific, well-rounded park flyer that's up for anything, and can be flown almost anywhere, this is it. Its ingenious design combines the perky efficiency of a sport aircraft with the flexibility of a bush aircraft so you really can have it all.
Tundra-Style Landing Gear or EDO-Style Floats-Both are Included!
Thick turf, gravel paths, regional ponds, dirt trails-you can fly off these and lots of other surface areas that would be impossible for the majority of models this size to manage. The Tundra-style landing gear includes practical shock absorbers and oversized tires that take in the bumps of rough surface areas and supply outstanding prop clearance when flying off turf. The included float set matches the trim plan of the plane and features double rudders for excellent steering control.
Whichever alternative you opt to fly with, both are simple to install and can be switched out in minutes.
STOL (Brief Departure and Landing) Abilities and an Abundance of Power
The Timber wing is created with STOL features like wing-tip droops, optional leading edge slats and practical flaps. These, in addition to the design's powerful brushless motor and lightweight, Z-Foam™ building, allow it to spring into the air or drift down and land in just 2 feet or less.
Brilliant LED Light System
Out of package, the design comes with realistic-looking nav lights, landing lights, wing-tip strobes and beacons, all set up and powered off the flight battery.
Durable Z-Foam™ Material with Hollow-Core Building and construction
Its lightweight, hollow-core building is a huge reason the Timber park flyer has such a large range of abilities. But don't let the lightweight fret you. It's developed using tested Z-Foam material that's tough enough to manage practically anything back-country flying can toss at it.
AS3X® Receiver with Optional SAFE® Select Innovation
By changing up the binding series, newer RC pilots can trigger SAFE technology features like self-leveling and angle limitations that are developed into the receiver. This will allow them to obtain a feel for the aircraft's excellent abilities without feeling like they remain in over their head, particularly when flying in the wind. Similar to any SAFE system, they can appoint a transmitter switch to turn the SAFE features on and off as needed.
Pilots who don't want to trigger SAFE® technology can bind the receiver generally and it will behave like a basic AS3X receiver. They can even tweak the receiver's AS3X settings if they have the free Spektrum programming user interface and a compatible programming cable (both readily available individually).

 Great Plane, Highly Recommend It
By Josh K on July 5, 2017   Verified Purchase

An amazing plane. Flies and glides well making it perfect for a beginner to advanced pilot that just wants to have an easy plane to fly. I enjoy the STOL capabilities as well, landing in just a few feet, taking off in less.
